Line of Duty series 6 episode 2 spoilers follow.
Line of Duty's sixth series continued with a cracker of a second episode, with a lengthy police interview that saw Ted Hastings at his no-nonsense, one-liner spouting best.
Joanne Davidson faced AC-12 over a number of issues: the murder of Gail Vella and her inconsistent police report about it, how she noticed a lone van was there to commit armed robbery and why she went to stop it rather than do her intended job, which led to further death.
Our protagonists deduced that the armed robbery was premeditated to cover up the truth about Gail's killing, but Davidson evaded arrest by pointing the finger at Farida Jatri, and surely enough they found burner phones at her house.
As the episode ended, we saw Davidson meet with a mysterious man to pick up another burner phone, but her pained expression at the end made it look like she wasn't leading a double life of her own free will.
Davidson's true nature, Kate Fleming's true loyalties, and what Ryan Pilkington is really doing working for the police are all things everyone will be debating all week, but one thing fans think they have figured out already is the voice Ac-12 found on a partial audio file amongst Gail's stuff.
Could it really be series 4's Jimmy Lakewell, speaking on the phone? At the moment it looks like Gail was murdered because she was investigating some really high-level stuff, so it'd be a good way to weave previous stories and characters together.
As AC-12 investigated Gail's murder earlier in the episode, we also got a throwback to the very first series. If you only jumped on board later than that, we explain why the character of Karim Ali is so important.
Line of Duty airs Sunday nights at 9pm on BBC One.
